and insults. and my god, madam, you really have come too far. it is clear that ubu roi burlesques shakespeare, but it is unlike the drama of its own time too. during an age when ibsen and chekhov were commenting in their own daring ways on the beliefs of their society, no one was quite like jarry. other playwrights put daring words into the speeches of their characters. jarry provided characters who are distortions of people, anatomic miracles and sartorial disasters. ibsen, with his well-made play, suggests that once social laws and attitudes are changed, the world may be an orderly place for reasonable people to live. other playwrights examine the inner lives of characters or puzzled over a philosophy worth believing in. only jarry, by emphasizing the base, brute-like passions of cartoon characters in a chaotic play punctuated by rude music, suggests that humanity isn't worth taking that seriously after all. as you watch ubu roi, you will be amused, if not startled, by the language and the abrupt changes in scene and costume. the convention of announcing an entire army through use of a toy

: without objection. please take your conversations out of the senate. a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from delaware. mr. coons: i ask unanimous consent to enter into a colloquy with the senator from alaska for up to 30 minutes. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. coons: madam president, senator murkowski of alaska is a strong leader on energy issue shuster and i'm grateful to work with her on the energy and natural resources committee and so in my view it's fitting that we're here today despite representing very different states from quite different regions of the country and different parties, to talk about an issue that we believe can bring us together. republicans and democrats alike can agree that when it comes to american energy, we need a comprehensive, all-of-the-above strategy. that's the only way we're going to succeed in developing secure, homegrown, and affordable sources of energy for our next generation. oil and gas in my view aren't going away any time soon but if renewable sources of energy are going to grow and also become

. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlelady from new york. ms. slaughter: madam speaker, i'm pleased to yield two minutes to the gentleman from nevada, member of the committee on natural resources. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from nevada is recognized for two minutes. mr. horsford: thank you, madam speaker, and thank you to the ranking member for your hard work on these issues. i stand before this house to ask that all members reject this rule. i had an amendment which was not approved, which is germane to ouse -- h.r. 1549, and follows cut-go and would have prevented defunding of the prevention and public health fund. unfortunately the rules committee rejected this amendment in order to keep this bill purely about political posturing. my constituents sent me here to work together to solve problems. not to relitigate legislation which has been adopted by congress, approved by the president, upheld by the supreme court, and that the american people support. the prevention and public health fund among other things helps reduce minority population health disparities

: thank you, madam president. and i thank senator sessions and rise to speak in support of sylvia mathews burwell whose nomination to be the next director of the office of management and budget was approved last week with strong bipartisan support by our senate budget committee. as we all know, our country does face serious fiscal and economic challenges that we have got to work together to address. the american people are looking to us to end this constant artificial crisis and political brinksmanship that are really threatening our fragile economic recovery. they want us to come together around fair solutions that work for our middle class, help the economy grow and tackle our deficit and debt fairly and responsibly. it is time that we stop governing from crisis to crisis and return stability and regular order to our budget process. that is why i'm so pleased that we have such an exceptional and qualified nominee to lead o.m.b. in sylvia burwell. i know she's the right person to come into this leadership role at this important time for our country. she is no stranger to o.m.b. or to tac

of the board. colleagues, can we take that without objection? [gavel] >> that will be the order. madam clerk, here are -- okay, supervisor kim. >> i may be be laboring the point. i don't understand the rush. most legislation takes at least six months to go through a process. so, i don't feel we'll be significantly delaying it adding another two weeks in order to allow this perspective of ceqa reform to be fully vetted by hpc and the planning commission. i do just want to note that there are a number of very controversial and complex policy matters that are before both the board and land use committee and i imagine that all three of us will be quite tied up in some of those other pieces of legislation as well. ~ over the next two weeks including condo conversion and others. so, i just don't see why we need to move it forward within two weeks and why we can't give it a full month. and also allow members of the public to fully digest the legislation that i have introduced which actually no one has seen in this room. so, either perspective of support or opposition to t i mean, i think they deser
